Sugaring is 100% natural and does not have the same "risk" factors as wax. There is no cross contamination as bacteria can not survive in sugar. Now, from a health and safety prospective, sugar surpasses wax. The procedure is also much faster and simpler than traditional waxing.

Please arrive freshly showered. Do not apply body lotion before the treatment. Sugaring requires a minimum hair length of 1/8". After your treatment we clean the sugared areas to remove all residue and apply an antiseptic so your pores and skin remain clean and disinfected to prevent breakouts and ingrown hairs. You will be clean, fresh and ready to continue your day.
Recommendations - Do not exercise before or immediately following your treatment. Exfoliate the treated areas in the shower after about a week to prevent bumps, breakouts and ingrown hairs. The suggested timeline to return for additional treatments is 5 to 6 weeks. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
